“I still need more healthy rest in order to work at my best. My health is the main capital I have and I want to administer it intelligently.” -Ernest Hemingway
Health Essential number 5 is to rest in alignment. For most patients we recommend sleeping on your back with two pillows under your knees and a contoured pillow under your neck. This position helps support the normal curves in your spine which will allow your weekly adjustments to be more effective. You should wake up every morning without the alarm clock feeling refreshed and ready for your day. If you have to hit the snooze button and drag yourself out of bed feeling exhausted you are not getting enough rest which will slow your progress and even cause new subluxations.
